Our family visited Pamir restaurant for dinner. Prior to our visit my wife wasn't sure that it is right choice, because she thought that it is one of many cheap and messy Afghan restaurants in Dandenong area. After our dinner her opinion was changed. First of all this restaurant has very nice authentic inner design. We choose Uzbek banquets and... More

Nice lady took my dinner reservation and was friendly upon arrival. The immediate area seemed to have been cleaned up a little (used to have unsavoury characters which deterred us from the area at night). Nice looking place. I found the prices steep and had to order 1 main meal per head. Kabuli pallaw (rice) and mantauu (dumplings) were delish.... More

“Ridiculously delicious……one of my all-time favourite restaurants”. Have been here a few time, it is compulsory if I am in Dandenong, no matter with friends or solo. A lot of beautiful options which are tasty and fresh! An iconic place. The design speaks a lot about the place! Friendly staff and delicious food motivates to come again!

If you dont mind walking up theee flight of stairs, parking in a area frequented desperate gamblers, drunks, druggies (usually after dark), then what awaits you upstairs is completely worth the trouble. We have eaten at pamir sevral times and love their taste, thier menu and their hospitalilty. I cant say the same for their prices as I found them... More

Food looked OK but was tasteless ... the worst was the meat kebabs which when cut into exuded water ... they must have been pre-frozen. Cost was double what the meal was worth. Would not return ... there are a lot cheaper and better quality Afghan restaurants around.

Pamir is like an oasis in the heart of Dandenong. Furnished in a particular style, it was a friendly venue for lunch. The food was excellent and fresh. Highly recommended. Very well priced.

This restaurant reminds me that there are many things in the world which just get popular for no reason. What good is this restaurant for, food is just so ordinary and too much overpriced. I only found some Aussies sitting around, for them its a change in routine and they don't know the real Afghan taste. There are many good... More
